According to GROW ENSEMBLE, here are the top 3 reasons to Volunteer:
#1: Volunteering Feels Good.
Think about it for a moment: you could spend your Saturday morning watching TV on the couch or you could help local school children plant a garden so they have fresh vegetables and fruits to eat throughout the school year. No-brainer. And I promise—your show will still be there for you to stream later once you are done getting out in the world to make a difference.
#2: Volunteering Can be Good for Your Career.
When you have a volunteer experience to add to your resume, you stand out over job candidates who don’t take the time to give back to society. Volunteering gives you a chance to show that you’re interested in things bigger than yourself, and you are willing to take action to make the changes you want in the world—and that will always help you shine through the competition.
#3: New Experiences, Especially Those Centered Around Community, are Good for Your Mind, Body, and Soul.
Volunteering not only gets you out of your comfort zone, but it will also enrich your life and give you a broader purpose. Throughout your life you’ve developed social and professional skills that promote your personal achievement. But using those skills for a wider, communal impact can be even more fulfilling. It creates an avenue of connection for you within your community!
